Post-Graduate Teacher Training: A Nigerian Alternative. Experiments and Innovations in Education No. 20.
Hawes, H. W. R.; Ozigi, A. O.
A new pattern of teacher preparation for university graduates in Nigeria, "a sandwich course," was established in 1972 to replace the conventional one-year continuous course. The change was made in response to the problems of teacher shortage and teacher demand in secondary-level institutions so that employed teachers could undergo additional professional training during holiday periods. This report shows not only how the program offers an effective alternative to traditional programs, but also how it can be used to meet peculiar needs, and how it may also serve other types of professional degrees. The analysis covers the nature of the program, including the background, the pattern of training, its administration and costs, the reactions and attitudes to it, its evaluation and some of the major problems that have to be faced in the future.
